About BroadBand Light Therapy

At Mesbahi Plastic Surgery in McLean, VA, Washington, D.C., and Beverly Hills, CA, we offer BroadBand Light Therapy with Forever Clear BBL™ by Sciton®. This procedure uses regenerating technology to improve the aesthetics of the skin for a younger-looking profile. It works by applying therapeutic light energy that mildly warms the skin and stimulates collagen production. Those with an array of dermal concerns may benefit from BBL since it works to fix unwanted freckles, rosacea, broken blood vessels, and sun damage. Also, it can help create a more smooth and even-looking texture to reveal a fresh, glowing complexion. BBL could be added to other cosmetic treatments to fulfill your unique needs and goals. Contact our office today to meet with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Alex Mesbahi to learn more about this innovative therapy.

Candidates for BBL

A great candidate for BBL is any woman or man dealing with hyperpigmentation or poorly textured skin. This may be due to acne, sun damage, broken capillaries, or rosacea. BBL can also help to make the skin seem more youthful by igniting the production of collagen. By varying the type of filter and modality used for the treatment, BBL can be used as a one-time therapy or maintenance regimen for a wide array of skin issues. Before undergoing treatment, Dr. Mesbahi will discuss how BBL technology can help you reach your cosmetic goals.

BBL Treatment

After creating the appropriate treatment plan, the programming of the BBL system will be adjusted to fit your unique needs. Before beginning the treatment, your eyes will be covered to protect them from the flash-light therapy. Dr. Mesbahi will then softly pass the Forever Clear BBL system over your skin while concentrating on the problem areas. The amount of time needed for the therapy will vary, depending on your unique skin condition and whether any additional services are being performed during your session. BBL treatments can ordinarily be completed in about an hour or less.

After your procedure

Following your BroadBand Light Therapy treatment, a soothing lotion will be applied to your skin. Dr. Mesbahi will also provide post-treatment care instructions and often advises reducing your exposure to the sun. Otherwise, patients are typically able to return to their normal daily activities. Outcomes from BBL may be noticed within 2 – 6 weeks following the initial treatment, but optimal results will generally be observed after multiple BBL treatments. Dr. Mesbahi generally recommends 3 – 4 treatments spaced one month apart, but this will vary, depending on your specific goals.

Regenerate Your Skin

This exciting therapy utilizes advanced technology to improve the appearance and texture of your skin. If you are struggling with hyperpigmentation, acne, or sun damage, BroadBand Light Therapy may be an ideal treatment for you.
